What Product Perfume.
According to M. Engoue Mesnard, it
is not osygni but light which is tho
mam cause of tho rruiiFformution and
destrurtion of tho odorous principles.
although iu many caws the two a gouts
art in concert. Iu producing the perfume
of plants light arts both as a chemical
and mechanical power. The intensity of
the perfume of flowers depends upon the
balance established at every hour of tho
day between the pressure of water iu
their cellules, which tends to drive tho
perfumes outward, and the drying action
of light. Where there is too much heat
there is too littlo scent. This is duo to
the excess of light and the dearth of
water. Cincinnati Enquirer.
How Fina Wire Is Made.
The finest wire in the country is
made at Taunton, Mass. This metal
cobweb of minute diameter is exactly
tne one-nve-buudredtn part 01 an inch
in thickness much finer than human
hair. Ordinary wire, even though of
small diameter, is drawn through holes
in steel plates, bnt, on account of the
wear, such plates cannot be used in
making tho hair wire. Tho Taunton
factory mentioned uses drilled diamonds
for that purpose.
"Don't I get a tip?" asked tho barber
after he had finished cutting tho tall
"What for?" asked the tall man.
"Why, for taking such good care of
you. Gentlemen generally give mo
"Well, so will I," said the tall man

Not aa Antbem.
Mr. W. S. Gilbert told a good story
against Sir Arthur Sullivan and himself
at tho Savage club. While "Tho Mi
kado" was in process of incubation tho
collaborators deckled that it would be
an excellent thing to herald tho entry of
the Japanese monarch by a suitable Jap
anese tunc not to real Japanese words,
and ther unsealed to airentlemun lenrn-
ed in matters onnccriiing the far east to
nc ip them m their difficulty. Thpresult
Was tho chorus in thesecoudart, "Miya
fa ma, miyasaina," thestrainsof which
are also heard with such singular effect
in tho overture. Until quite recently
Mr. Gilbert and Sir Arthur Sullivan
were under the impression that this air
belonged to something in the national
anthem; but it now seems that they
have been badly sold. A friend of Mr.
Gilbert, who saw 'The Mikado" the
other day for the firat time, has written
a letter complimenting the author and
com poster upon the general aeheme of
their local color, but expressing aston
ishment at the introduction of the
"Miya soma" chorus, the tune of which
he declares to be that of a song sung
only in the lowest teahouses of Yoko
hama and calculated to make tbe lord
chamberlain's hair stand on end. Pub
